Last I checked he had no part in the company aside from being the de facto mascot.

It's his business. He can run it the way he sees fit.

Also, this guy is a figure head. He has no say so in the day to day operations of the company He is just relaying messages.

I vaguely remember that cool thing called capitalism that was in place. In this system people will be less fortunate than others, but it's their fault if they don't hate it enough to do something about it.

@blk954 first of all, this is not *his* business to do with as he pleases. Papa Johns in a publically owned company, John Schnatter is just the CEO. I'm not saying this isn't the right thing to do, just don't go saying it's "his business' and he "can do whatever he want".

Also, no one is saying he should be arrested. They're just saying not to buy his pizzas. As consumers, are we not free to do as we please?

I think anyone who does not pay income tax or has accepted government aide should forfeit their right to vote. The reason Obama won again was in large part due to the fact folks don't want their gravy train to stop. What difference does it make if we have a balanced budget? Just keeping giving away free stuff. Oh and Papa John's pizza taste like donkey taint.

"He probably nets less than 14 cents per pizza for his personal take, and if he raises his prices to cover the extra cost, he will lose business to his competitors. "

That's not true at all. His competitors happen to be in America too right? You don't think they are also going to have to accommodate the same cost increase?

So basically what is going to happen is that unlimited topping large pizzas will go from $9.99 to $10.25. Yes, "we're all going to have to take the punishment".

Come on.

I was OK with him being a rich guy. Not OK with him being an a$$hole. No..I would order from somewhere else.

'I am in favor of a national heath system, but I think it's a taxpayer funded plan, not a "bill-the-rich" thing.'

There I agree.

@McThstlpnts - with that logic, "why does one man have a mazarati when I have to get by with a volkswagon?"

He started a company. He was successful. So BAD him! Punish him an make him pay for everything I want.

He can do whatever the hell he wants. It's HIS business and it's still (at least for a little while longer) a free country. He warned people he was going to do this and he will most likely keep his word. I know all of you "gimme more", lazy, a**holes are in shock. This is just the tip of the iceberg my socialist friends. It's going to get MUCH worse. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

'So why is he responsable to pay for your health care?'

His employees are why he enjoys his own health care and overall high standard of living.

@Gerry101 What makes it right for one company to provide Health insurance for their employees and another not? You're right he doesn't have to. But it is called equal opportunity. How can you justify someone working a job or more than one job but still not be able to afford health insurance and needing gov't assistance as a result? How is that right or moral? Really we shouldn't be attacking the corporation or "Obamacare" we should be pointing the finger at Insurance companies that are causing all this mess. It is so ridiculously expensive to get Health Insurance on your own...especially since businesses/corporations gets serious discounts for providing insurance to their employees if they choose to do so.

So what he's saying is because the cost of running his business is increasing he might have to increase the cost of his pizza for a nominal amount? That's the first time that's ever happened in the history of ever! He's just whiny because the candidate who doesn't cater to the extremely wealthy won. Anybody here play the violin? Your services are needed.

All you Obama supporters were warned that this would happen, but I guess you thought all these business owners were just bluffing. Well, it turns out that they weren't bluffing, and now you're acting all butt-hurt.

Your mistake was in assuming that everyone else is as dishonest as you are. You were wrong, and now we're all going to have to take the punishment that you deserve.

Kind of a dumb move for PR. If he would have went on TV and said "I will be raising the price on all pizzas 25 cents so that my company can begin to provide healthcare options to all employees, something every American should have". I would have made a point to get Papa Johns whenever I ordered delivery and he would have made an extra 12 cents of profit ON TOP of the 14 cents to cover healthcare.

You know how much his house costs to maintain?
He needs that money or else the company suffers, and in turn, every employee suffers.
Sure, he could have taken the 'moderate living' choice, but what would you do if you owned a huge pizza chain like Papa John's?

He's successful and he's enjoying it.
So why is he responsable to pay for your health care?
Does he also have to make your car payment?
Or buy your auto insurance?

*sigh* I'm not even going to start the argument, but to find out the truth take an economics course or open an econ book. Maybe this post is right, maybe it isn't.

The US Postal service is also planning on cutting hours too. It is a horrible situation. People with mediocre jobs just to make ends meet can't afford basic medical insurance and their mediocre jobs won't offer it. So you bring in ACA. Now these massive corporations who provide said jobs are finding loopholes to STILL not provide healthcare for their employees. You would think good ol' Papa John would be more sympathetic since he used to be poor but it would seem the money has gone to his head. Welcome to capitalistic America where the rich live the life of luxury on the backs of the poor.
